Who the Trends Like: The home team has covered the spread in 10 of the last 11 meetings between these two teams while the Patriots are 5-1 against the number in their last six games against the Dolphins. That said, New England is just 1-4 at the betting window in its last five trips to Miami. The over is also 5-2 in the last seven meetings between these two teams.

Who We Like: New England. Since Week 5, the Patriots have allowed the fewest points in the league. Remember when they had all of those issues defensively? Yeah, Bill Belichick ironed them out. Miami has had trouble scoring all season and now faces the best defensive unit (from a scoring standpoint) in the league over the past two months.

The Patriots are 13-3 against the spread in their last 16 road games, are 4-1 against the number in their last five divisional games, and are 34-15-2 at the betting window in their last 51 games overall. They're also 20-8 against the spread in their last 28 conference games and 10-1 ATS in thie rlast 11 games when playing an opponent with a losing record.

The Dolphins, meanwhile, are 0-8 against the spread in their last eight Monday games. They're also 0-3-1 at the betting window in their last four divisional games and are 1-4-2 against the number in their last seven games overall.
